pMedGR is one of the eight Biomedical Research Infrastructures included in the new National Roadmap that has just been launched. pMedGR is the Greek Research Infrastructure for Precision Medicine Towards more accurate and cost-effective health management for the Greek citizen.
Following recent technological breakthroughs, such as rapid sequencing of the human genome, the concept of personalised medicine/health has become key in understanding, classifying, preventing and treating human disease. Capitalising on top clinical and basic research teams, the pMedGR infrastructure aims to support research towards patient stratification, biomarker development, tailored healthcare
interventions and personalised treatment strategies to help bridge the gap between genomic information and clinical practice. pMedGR is particularly significant for the Greek population and neighbouring countries, which represent a genetic pool that differs from Central and Northern European populations, thus offering unique potential for the development of targeted therapies and diagnostic modalities specifically for this population.
The objectives of the new pMedGR infrastructure are to: (a) support research aiming at the transition from traditional symptom-based healthcare models to omics-based approaches for health and disease; (b) allow the in-depth description of
individual phenotypes at a systems level by providing access to cutting-edge technological platforms, clinical data and biological specimens; (c) generate technological ICT solutions that facilitate the processing, integration and modeling of the output of several technological platforms; (d) train the next generation of physicians and bioscientists that will develop and implement personalized medicine; and (e) lead industrial innovation towards novel diagnostic and therapeutic modalities and advanced knowledge for personalised healthcare.
